The Canon EOS C300 Mark II is due out in September. The above short film, Trick Shot, is the first film shot on the new C300 Mark II and it is made available on YouTube in full 4K resolution. You may have to click over to YouTube if you have a 4K display and watch to want it at full resolution.

The short was directed by Evan Kaufmann and shot by cinematographer Gale Tattersall, who you might recall also made headlines after he shot an episode of House M.D. entirely with the Canon 5D Mark II.
